Second suspect charged in 2008 shooting in Lawrence

March 3, 2011


Douglas County prosecutors have charged a second person in connection with a 2008 shooting and robbery that occurred at an apartment on Redbud Lane.

According to jail records, officers on Thursday served a warrant on charges of aggravated robbery and aggravated battery on Asia Shanae Morrison, 21. The warrant was served at the jail.

Prosecutors earlier this week filed the same charges against Dustin D. Walker, 26, of Lawrence who was already in jail for another shooting that occurred Dec. 5, 2010, at South Pointe Apartments.

In the April 22, 2008, incident, a 20-year-old Lawrence man was shot in the leg as suspects took money from him in an apartment in the 2500 block of Redbud Lane.

Morrison and Walker are both accused in taking part of the robbery that resulted in the victim being shot, according to court records.
